    I have been diagnosed with having a hiatal hernia and I have had some unexplained digestive problems that vary from constipation and stomach pain to frequent diarrhea after eating some meals. I was wondering if the diarrea could be a symptom of the hiatal hernia?

    I looked around at some major medical sites and while nausea was mentioned I didn't find any mention of constipation or diarrhea. Most cases of hiatal hernias do not cause symptoms. When it does cause symptoms from what I could tell most of the symptoms caused by these hernias are in the upper body area. Be sure to check with your doctor about your frequent diarrhea, constipation and stomach pain. Good luck!
